Mary: *giggling* That's what you get when you try to be efficient! XD Me, I just watch whenever I want even if it means I have to repeat the episode again for recapping. (That means I get less time to watch other shows though. Also, a lack of sleep. Ok. Maybe not being efficient is worse? Meh. Don't ask me. I'm an apple.)
becca: I love this show to pieces, but I actually don't feel much desire to marathon it. I like watching as we recap, even if it means I'm way behind everyone else. This is one drama that I like to savor.
Tell us!!! How much is in the wallet?! Yoo-na told Hwa-suk (awww, she's tiny) that a "small error" is fine, but ... how can anyone KNOW from just looking how much money there is in a wallet??! Ahhhh! The suspense is killing me... Yoo-na opens it and starts counting ... it's 302,000 Won. And not 320,000, as Hwa-suk suspected, cause she "misread" the 1,000s for 10,000s. Pfft.
(You have to! She comes from the same people as Jin's Sex Ghost Detection clan in WTFParis!) (She does?) They go have pizza together afterwards and Hwa-suk tells them a bit more about her ability and when she developed it (when her mother lied to her about only having money for bean sprouts and not cookies). She's quite messed up, it seems: at school, she was so distracted by the money in her teacher's wallet, she couldn't study. She seems unstable and a psychotic kleptomaniac. Nam-su disapproves of how she lived her life, but Yoo-na seems to bond easily with the girl - does she see a bit of herself in her?
Mary: Nam-su was just scolding her for being embarrassed about her powers. He thinks it's a pretty cool gift to have. I agree with your "he's kinda untalented" assessment last ep, Kahuna. T^T
becca: *stares at pizza longingly*
(I rewatched it to check! Also an excuse to see Nam-su again.) Chang-man manages to hide and then leaves, after mumbling to himself. Is he pissed that Yoo-na is with Nam-su? Ahhh, tell me! I'm so used to KDrama characters talking to themselves aloud about their thoughts and feelings!
becca: *too busy giggling over how cute on-a-mission-Chang-man is*
Mary: How can Yang-sun resist when Bong dangled the "imagine Yoo-na living peacefully on the right side of the law with you" card? Yang-sun is good people and she loves Yoo-na very much.
kakashi: Yes, and now it's about making sure she doesn't go to prison another time. Which is much better than "just" trying to make her a law-abiding citizen.
becca: The first hug of the THugCap goes to these two! They may be messed up, but they're good people under it all. And I support anyone who helps Chang-man and Yoo-na get together!
Mary: I laughed so much when Dong-min said, "I'm not a 'kiddo', my name is Dong-min!" and Pres Jeong seriously apologized. Then all that lecturing about $1 when he throws millions of won away on his mistress. Aigoo~
becca: I like those kids.
Mary: Is she training him to be a Genius Gigolo???
becca: Or is he a Genius Gigolo already??? Because it seems to be working on her. (Also, does anyone else think he looks kinda like Ji Hyun-woo?)
Mary: Screw Manbo! That was a good, proper offer right there. Very fair too. Why does Chang-man have to be so goldarned thoughtful??? Herring is good people despite HEHEHE's tip that his name means narrow-minded in Korean slang. (Thanks for the explanation HEHEHE! *sneaks a hug in*)
becca: I don't know. Herring may be good people, but it would probably be smarter for Chang-man to find a job outside of this circle of gangsters.
So the Hammer-issue is solved? Manbo wants to see Axe and urges him to drink. Axe doesn't want to drink. Madame managed to substantially reduce the title charge, it seems - and managed to have it split between Manbo, Herring, and some of the other businesses. Axe is sorry for being the cause for all of this, which immediately leads to Madame asking a favor from him. Can you guess? Yes: Axe is to hold Chang-man back, so that he doesn't quit the colatec.
becca: No! Don't do it, Axe Grandpa!
(YES. And it's steak and wine! Not the casual ramen/soju dinner. Just sayin') They discuss the high sum that Hwa-suk asked for. Ah, but he seems to have enough money, so if Yoo-na wants to work with her, work with her it is! Nam-su is quite confident he can handle it all. But can he handle Yoo-na? He asks her to come on a country-trip with him and she turns him down like it's nothing. Bam. He adds "we'll go another time then" and I do want to hug him.
Mary: She turned him down because she has to do laundry. *facepalm* Poor Nam-su. He's lower than dirty clothes in Yoo-na's list of priorities. C'mere, Nam-su! I don't mind not having clothes to wear just to spend time with you. *covers Rim wallpaper's eyes*
becca: Hey, don't forget who she does her laundry with. *points at Chang-man and makes winky face*
(I loved her comment. Hihi.) Da-young sends her back in and continues her line-practise, but here is the man already. Curly scoffs at Da-young's use of "oppa", but the girl is completely unfazed as she hands Chang-man a present: Kimchi.
Mary: I LOLed when she tilted her head and blinked between saying kim-- and chi. Gurl, Chang-man is taken! Taken! Y'hear?!
becca: And yet, I kind of like her these days, which is why I feel bad for her because he IS taken, and she's just gonna get hurt. *hugs the silly girl*
becca: Heheh. I love this! Nam-su trying to assert himself, Chang-man just staring at Yoo-na, and Yoo-na squirming from all the awkwardness.
Mary: I don't like Da-young but it was also very strange for Yoo-na to go all inquisition on her ass like that. Though Yoo-na being jealous will never be not funny. kekeke
becca: Uh-oh. Should I be worried? Does Da-young do something bad later? Wait, NO! Don't tell me! *covers ears*
(pffft). Chang-man can't help it, he has to laugh at that. So what is he doing? Ahhh, a civil servant ... what kind? Oh, says Chang-man, he recently became convinced that he wants to be a ... police officer. To catch thieves. How good is this conversation?!
Mary: MY FAVORITE CONVERSATION. Hahaha! Clueless Nam-su is all polite small-talk "Oh, government job is very stable. You'll get regular nice pay." But Chang-man is all "I don't wanna do it for money. I just want to save the world from thieves. *meaningful look*"
becca: *giggles* They really should put these guys together more often.
Mary: Yes! It's a cute, duck car! I want one! Although I thought he was being territorial with the "Please take care of woori Yoo-na" thing. Or was that just my shippy kokoro imagining things again?
becca: A bit territorial, yes, but not in an arrogant way, I think. He wants to clearly let Chang-man know he's interested, too. He's not saying "back off" so much as, "you're not the only one who sees how special she is."
Mary: I don't know either! But I feel very sorry for the reluctant gigolo puppy. :<
becca: I've been wondering about the pregnancy - no one's mentioned it in ages. Anyway, I'm not sure what to think of him. The more I see him, the more shifty he seems (or is that just the actor?). I secretly hope he scams her, so she can get a taste of her own medicine. If they want to reconcile and be happy after that, I'm okay with it.
Mary: I doubted the puppy at this point too although I couldn't help but think that it would've served Mi-sun right if she got played the way she does to her 100000 other men.
becca: SEE!! She needs to be knocked down pretty hard before she can learn something and straighten herself out. It is kinda sad to see her so easily fooled, though, if that's what's going on. It's like she's desperate to believe she could have a chance with a good man instead of the usual dirtbags she hangs around.
Mary: Meh. Every time Manbo says, "I'll listen to you" then gets mad at the answer, I just want Chang-man to stop putting up with this guy. He never learns his lesson!
becca: Manbo is a bratty little bully these days. He gets no hugs.
(LOL)... for the old men at the colatec. Only problem ... it's not even real viagra. That causes quite a ruckus among the old gentlemen at the dance club.
becca: Yeah, but they seem to be ignoring an important factor: if they want their employees to be upright and respectable, shouldn't they be setting a better example? It's not just about who's working for you - it's also about how you conduct yourself.
Mary: Nam-su is very capable when it comes to protecting his people, yes? *stands behind tall, shield-like Nam-su* *tries not to eye his butt*
kakashi: Even people that are not his people, yes! *hides there too*
becca: *lines up behind the three of you* Are we starting a conga line?
Mary: HAHAHAHA I deyed laughing when Yoo-na opened the door and Chang-man stuttered and forgot what he was saying.
becca: *squeeing madly* He's so cuuuuuutttteeeee. *giggles and squees some more*
becca: Well.... *wiggles eyebrows suggestively*
This show is so addictive. I just want more.
Mary: *jumps up and down* It is! It is! These last few episodes are loads of fun! And the next couple of episodes. And the episodes after that...
becca: Onward, squeecappers!!
